Two versions… the FDP-9 (Folding Defensive Pistol) and the FDC-9 (Folding Defensive Carbine).

Big link. Magpul ūü§Ě¬†Zev Technologies to make the magic happen; you love to see it.¬† I’ve been thinking of this gun (along with everyone else) since the 2008 SHOT SHOW… I’m actually surprised it’s taking them this long to do, since I can’t even remember the last time the entire internet was so hyped over something.¬† Oh well it’s happening now (well, the year 2022) so that’s good to see.¬† If you weren’t born yet, or were too young to remember the 2008 SHOT video they previewed on the TV in the above promo, here it is:

Walk your dog, take the garbage out, get the mail… haha timeless.

If you click the Magpul link above it goes into the legality of the setup.

Thoughts? I should also mention that if you’re looking to put an AR-15 brace or stock on your Glock, I’ve been making my stock adapter for the Glock (GEN 1,2,3) for years now. Will I ever come out with the GEN4/5? Maybe. I’ve had the prototype done for ages.

One of my favorite companies, period:

Good stuff, Happy Birthday my dudes.¬† Magpul is one of those companies, where everything they make is nicely designed and works properly.¬† You wouldn’t think that would be too much to ask, but seriously if you spend some time in any industry there is so much garbage; it’s refreshing when you find a company whose products live up to (and exceed) your expectations.

New pouch alert.  The Daka:

Magpul-LogoMagpul¬†calls it “the toughest pouch in the world”. ¬†A bold claim which I seriously hope fathers several dozen fan made YouTube videos with all sorts of shenanigans.

Made in the USA from reinforced polymer fabric with an anti slip texture, welded construction, water repellent zipper, 550 paracord tab on the zipper etc.. Wooooooo. I hope my girlfriend doesn’t read that it has a carabiner attachment point. I was just making fun of her janitor-esque keychain bundle held together by a carabiner the other day. It was perfect timing that some lesbians in the movie “Sisters” (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) we watched around the same time cracked a carabiner joke. The movie actually was pretty funny, just don’t watch the trailer if you don’t want most of the good jokes to be spoiled.

The pouch comes in three different sizes and ranges in price from $17 – $30. ¬†Looks great for travel! ¬†Now if only they could make tough travel size liquid bottles that wouldn’t explode face wash, shampoo and conditioner (yes I use conditioner, I’m not a savage) all over my belongings, I’d be set.

Looks good to me:

travis-haley-magpul-dynamics-CEOI own a¬†GEN1 UBR and really like it. ¬†Yes it’s incredibly heavy, but you could also run it over with a tank and it would probably be fine. ¬†Looks like they reduced the weight by 20% for this new version, so that’s cool. ¬†Like we operators say “Ounces equal pounds, and pounds equal pain bro” ;). ¬†Reducing the cost by 25% down to $200 is always nice too. ¬†Definitely not as affordable as most of their other stocks, but trust me if this GEN2 is anything like the GEN1 (which it looks to be), then it’s worth every penny. ¬†Protip: The trap door is perfect for snacks.

Magpul’s new site is breathtaking. ¬†Even if you’re not in the market for anything gun related, just click the link to¬†breeze through and marvel at its greatness.

AK Operator Union keeping it thorough:

TIER -18 operators don’t use eye protection, apparently even when they’re trying to make a magazine or rifle catastrophically fail. ¬†Oh well,¬†I’m not the one whose going to have to learn braille.

AK-47-Kool-AidI like how these are real drop tests.  This guy gives zero shits about the cosmetics of his AK or his mag.

5:29 – BULLSHIT AK! ¬†They aren’t supposed to fail. ¬†:P

Thoughts?  Is eye pro for chumps?

Full glove retard over at Magpul. Here’s a promo for the newest; the breach glove:

magpul-glovesGranted all the gloves look awesome, and they all are designed for a specific purpose. ¬†Who know the glove industry was so hot right now? ¬†I clearly didn’t.

I still think the¬†flight gloves¬†I blogged about initially, are the ones I’m most interested in.

I’m waiting for a new glove every day next week, for even the most niche hobbies and interests. ¬†Oh you’re a DJ who plays Dungeons & Dragons and suffers from multiple sided die palm¬†abrasions, and record groove¬†index and pointer finger trauma? ¬†Magpul has you covered with the new DJDD glove *coming soon*.

Here are all the gloves they offer currently for those of you looking to pick some up.
